Networks Why and When. (April)
This is an introduction to networks from Netcentric Campaigns. We think about networks in a very particular way. This session shares an overview of what we have learned about networks and social change. We talk about when networks are a good fit for a challenge and why building networks and network capacity can help contribute to solutions to complex wicked and messy issues. We will talk with participants about their work, the ways they see networks in action, and we will talk about building the skills needed to build, strengthen, and manage networks. Participants will be briefed on upcoming additional sessions and a series of online work sessions with other network leaders. Netcentric Campaigns has organized this online work for people seeking to better master network projects and initiatives.
